    I set 9 d'Uccle eggs 23 days ago. All were developing and moving through week 2. One pipped 2 days early and died. Two pipped on Sunday (hatch day)...one hatched yesterday, one died. The remaining 6 appear to have died in the shell without pipping.

    The temp and humidity have been perfect through the entire incubation.

    What could have gone wrong?

    I think that's normally caused by poor nutrition in the flock.
